From the Moog analog synthesizers in the 1960s to the contemporary usage of computers, performance controllers, and mobile devices, Electronic Digital Instruments (EDIs) have long been capable of offering artists a new range of musical expression.
Your instructor is EDI musician and Berklee College of Music's Electronic Production and Design professor Rishabh Rajan.
He will take you through the basics of EDI performance and give you pointers on how to build an arrangement on your EDI. Whether you have just ordered your first pad-controller or have already been experimenting with electronic music, this class will teach you the basics of performing and arranging on the EDI. At the Electronic Music Performance Techniques course offered by Coursera in partnership with Berklee, you will start by learning how to build drum beats and read drum notation. Then you will create bass lines and harmonic accompaniment. Finally, you will learn how to live loop all of these elements and perform an arrangement for a live audience.
